OUR BELIEFS

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God in all parts and wholly without error. The Bible is the ultimate and final authority for our faith and practices of life.

 

We believe in one true living God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son,  and the Holy Spirit. This one God is the creator and giver of all life and the one to whom all mankind is held accountable.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, shed His blood as an atonement for man's sin and rose bodily from the dead. He has ascended into heaven where He awaits to return.

 

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit. He is a co-equal part of the one triune God. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.

We believe that all men, by nature and choice, are sinful. The penalty for sin is eternal separation from God.

 

We believe that salvation from the penalty of sin is a free and eternal gift of God. This gift is received individually by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. No one can earn, merit, or add to the finished work of Christ.

 

We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. His return is imminent.
